Additional Info

Pamela Buford and Brian Hastings, two young actors, members of a local summer theatre company, get involved with a production ofOthello, starring Keith Garrick and his wife, Kay Charles, two major stars. Keith has an offer from London to star as Othello in a repertoire that has Hamlet played by a black actor, and Othello played as a Caucasian. By staging the plays in stock he hopes to prove that color-blind casting doesn't make any sense. Romantic entanglements and ethnic casting are some of the problems that arise in this comedy.
